Notes from the Sapphire & Steel chronology


The carriages of the train in this story exist in different times: 1919, 1938, 1962, 1982, and 2004. 2004 seems to be the "current" year.

Phillip Burgess



Flight Sergeant John Andrews

Lord Rothmore

Lady Rothmore

Mr. Hadley (mentioned only)

the Conductor

Phillip Burgess' daughter (unnamed, mentioned only)


Didja Notice?


Andrews wonders why the Nazi soldiers in his war (WWII) would choose to fight and die for "that man". He is referring to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, chancellor of Germany 1934-1945.


In this episode, we learn that the Princess' name is Louise.


Gold remarks to the conductor (Time itself), "You're good at that aren't you? Linking events together, creating connections where there were none before." This is what Time has done consistently in Sapphire and Steel's adventures.
